The Monday Recipe Blog
Ever hear of egg white cookies? How about Lebkucken? Popcorn cake?
For the foreseeable future I will be raiding the recipe box and posting these terrific recipes right here on Mondays. She specialized in cookies and according to her children, would make several kinds of special cookies whenever the holidays rolled around. I'm planning to try her renowned Springerle soon. I have her wooden Springerle press and her little rolling wheel to cut them. Never mind that I had never heard of Springerle cookies before - I'll research it and find out the origins, then report back to you.
For today, I'll post her recipe for shrimp cocktail sauce. I've always wondered what was in that stuff, even though I don't like shrimp. Now I know. It's simple and fast, but I promise that more elaborate recipes are coming.
So, when you read these terrific recipes over the next few months, please give a few thoughts to the lady who worked every day to make life wonderful for her husband and three children. Here's to you, Lois Elaine Mueller!
1/3 c. catsup
1/9 (that's what it says) c. horseradish
1/2 t. Worchestershire sauce
Mix together and you have it.
